Open house Wednesday on changes coming to Fremont Avenue

Seattle Department of Transportation is holding another open house on upcoming changes to Fremont Avenue North, from North 77th to North 110th streets.

The open house is from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Greenwood Senior Center, 525 N. 85th St.

This street connects to the soon-to-open cycle track on Linden Avenue N, local destinations and transit.

Over the past five years, features making it safer and more comfortable to walk and bike have been added including traffic signals at N 80th, N 85th and N 105th streets and a new sidewalk between N 86 and N 90th streets in front of the North Seattle Boys and Girls Club and Greenwood Park.

To complete safety improvements, SDOT is planning the following:

  • Install 20 mph speed limit signs.
  • Construct 13 speed humps.
  • Add new stop signs to streets that cross Fremont Avenue N (that’s ~44 signs).
  • Add bicycle pavement markings.
  • Repair pavement and sidewalks.
